Hawai’i is home to untold biodiversity and some of the most beautiful landscapes on Earth. But did you know that Hawai'i is also ground zero for experimentation of genetically engineered (GE) crops designed to resist ever more toxic chemical pesticides? With GE crops and their accompanying pesticides, the land beloved by residents and visitors alike is slowly being poisoned by five of the largest corporations in the world. Communities in Hawai'i are concerned about the long-term impacts of these chemicals on their health and the health of the land, water, and ocean.
